To the family of Mr. Isaac Mathis, may it comfort you to know that after sin and death entered the world, Jehovah God revealed that it was his purpose that the dead be restored to life by means of a resurrection. So may the "God of comfort" comfort you in the loss of your dear loved one. (Acts 24:15; 2 Corinthians 1:3,4)
